‘The Turkish Way’, produced by BBVA, premiered in the culinary section of the San Sebastian Film Festival. The documentary captures the experience of the Roca brothers during their trip to Turkey in 2015, bearing witness to how the top chefs in the country are starting an interesting gastronomic movement. “Being there was wonderful, meeting top chefs and seeing them gather and come together in a manifesto aimed at boosting the relevance of their cuisine,” said Joan Roca, chef of El Celler de Can Roca, during the presentation of the film.
